Felipe Assadi at Cersaie 2019
Felipe Assadi, renowned Chilean architect awarded with the Young Promotion Award in 1999, will be the first protagonist of the cultural programme Building, Dwelling, Thinking.
The integration in the landscape and the use of inexpensive, easy to be found and to be transported materials are the common thread in all his projects, completed in the United States and Latin America.
Casa H, Casa La Roya, Casa Cipolla are only a few examples on how Felipe Assadi has been able to perfectly combine design and materials with environment and surrounding landscape.
Camilo Rebelo and the importance of the landscape
“We wanted to pay tribute to the landscape.”said Camilo Rebelo about his project for the Museu do Côa: set in the middle of the Côa Valley archaeological park, one of the biggest challenges facing the architects was that of working on a building in a natural environment.
Rebelo presented other projects including the new Port Wine Museum, a remodelled residential building that celebrates one of the world’s most famous wines; the Ovo or Egg, a wooden space designed to hold the Semente (Seed) sculpture created by Portuguese artist Rui Chafes.
Carla Juaçaba and the cultural continuity
The winner of the inaugural international ArcVision Women and Architecture prize, Carla Juaçaba has a special interest in the poetry and expressive potential of tectonics and explores the concept of place in terms of cultural continuity and phenomenological perception.
Together with another nine international architects, she recently took part in "Vatican Chapels" at the Venice Architecture Biennale.
